With the 19th-overall pick in the draft, the Cardinals went with Texas A&M righthander Michael Wacha.
Wacha is one of the most polished pitchers in this year's class and is a great value at No. 19, as we had him rated as the 11th-best player in the draft.
Standing 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds, Wacha has an above-average fastball and the best changeup in this year's class. His slider is still developing but shows flashes of being a plus pitch. He pounds the zone with all of his pitches and works at a fast pace.
Wacha joins teammate Tyler Naquin in the first round and gives the Aggies a pair of first round picks for the first time since 1993.
